Sitting in the Marina at Port Bundaberg in November was bad enough. In the Solomons at that time of year I would now want to be on a 50ft Hunter with aircon and icemaker.
Yea verily brother ! One of my favourite cruising books is Hal Roth's "Two on a Big Ocean", which tells of the Roths's circling of the Pacific. Me I'd love to do a cruise up to Japan from Oz, something of the road less travelled in that idea but sitting it out below 10 degrees during the cyclone/typhoon season(s) is not something I'd look forward to.
